TeamViewer 4.0.5503 has been released.

Version 4.0.5503

Fixes regarding the error handling in the partner list system
Minor fixes to the automated updating process

Version 4.0.5474

This is a bugfix release that solves some minor issues, especially in the new partner list system

Version 4.0.5421

Fix: Crash point removed that especially occured on Windows Vista
Fix: Correct display of remote RAM in remote system info
other minor fixes

New features

Web Connector - use TeamViewer via web browser: Through the newly developed web client you can now control remote computers via a web browser. The remote control works with Adobe Flash 9. Thanks to that TeamViewer 4 does not require Active X or any other security-critical components. Therefore, the web client is the perfect solution for environments in which no executables are allowed to be run or installed, for remote access on the road and for working from Linux machines. The TeamViewer Web Connector is included in TeamViewer Premium.

Browser based 1:n presentations: Now also browser based presentations are possible. Your presentation attendees only need a web browser with Adobe Flash 9. Multiple attendees can join an online presentation at the same time (up to 2 in the free version, 5 in the Business version and up to 10 if you have a Premium license).

Partner list with online status: With the new TeamViewer partner system you can establish single-click connections to partners and computers you connect to on a regular basis. Aside from that the partner list includes a status display so that you will always see which one of your partner/computers is online. The accounts will be saved on the TeamViewer servers and will thus be available anywhere on the globe - no matter from where you log on. The Web Connector also supports the partner system.

Improved performance: Changes in the transfer protocol along with improved caching and compression methods make the new TeamViewer 4 substantially faster.

Displaying remote system information: Retrieve detailed system information with a single mouse click.

Changing the screen resolution remotely: The resolution of the remote screen can now be easily adjusted during a running session - to better fit the remote screen to your own screen or to increase the performance.

TeamViewer 5.0.7478 has been released.

NEW: Audio (VoIP) / Video

* An important innovation in TeamViewer 5 is the new VoIP (Voice over IP) audio and video capability. It enables you to talk to your customers for free and to give your sessions a more personal touch using a webcam.
* The packet prioritization that was specifically developed for TeamViewer ensures an optimal audio and video quality even if you are transferring files or if you are actively working on a remote desktop at the same time.
* That makes TeamViewer one of the few solutions on the market that allows VoIP and video across firewalls!

NEW: Enhanced and Flexible Session Control

The new TeamViewer panel offers new features and more flexibility for all remote sessions - for support, presentations, trainings and online meetings:

* Application selection - share only selected applications instead of the whole desktop.
* Your partner does not have a headset for VoIP? No Problem - TeamViewer 5 has an integrated teleconferencing solution with access numbers in numerous countries (additional charges per minute apply for calling the access numbers).
* Improved whiteboard for faster notes
* The new widgets make TeamViewer 5 flexible as never before - doing exactly what you want and need.

NEW: TeamViewer Manager 5

Our additional solution for professional users, TeamViewer Manager, has been overhauled and improved as well:

* TeamViewer Manager 5 can be synchronized with the partner list account and enables you to manage your customers on the road or at the office.
* Connections in TeamViewer Manager can easily be merged manually now.

NEW: Additional New and Improved Functionalities

TeamViewer 5 features even more innovations and improvements:

* Adaptability: TeamViewer's options have been further improved and enhanced so you can adapt it even better to your needs.
* Speed - fast, faster, TeamViewer: TeamViewer 5 is even faster than TeamViewer 4, especially in routed connections behind firewalls.
* Usability: the new TeamViewer control panel and an optimized menu simplify and improve the handling of our software.

I am a big fan of Team Veiwer ... and have just installed ver 5.

Just one little issue.

When transferring files, the previous version(s) automatically skipped files that already existed at the destination.

This apparently was the default.

In version 5 a dialogue pops a warning, and there is an 'Overwrite ALL' selection but no 'SKIP ALL'.

I can't seem to find anyway to set a default to SKIP ALL either.

Any help with this issue would be greatly appreciated as I would hate to have to stop using Team Viewer.

Thanks in advance.
